Loads of people have said thats a cracking film. I just don't think its going to be my cup of tea. Something about Marvel comic films leave me cold. The only comics I collected as a kid was the Beano and the Dandy.



They'd be welcome to make a film on the Numskulls. Fucking adored that in the Beano.

I remember reading the Numskulls when they were in The Beezer, way before they jumped over to The Beano.

Hardly anyone reads comics any more...and this film has broken box office records. So I think it's safe to say you don't have to be a comic book fan to enjoy it!

I don't read comics, and I didn't really get the fascination with the previous Marvel films, but I enjoyed the Avengers a lot!

Perhaps I am being unfair, the first two are pretty good films, but the following 6 sequels are fucking tripe. They were scraping the barrel so hard one of them was set in fucking space for fuck sake.


hmmmm, I only class the first 3 films as real Hellraiser films, 4 and 5 are terrible and 6 to 8 so bad they never got released over here!

I still enjoy the first 3, they're very dated now and cheesey as hell, but still really fun gorefests. Actually it's a similar situation to Saw in that there were 3 decent films that should have been left as a trilogy, but then it got flogged to death with endless dreadful sequels.

Totally agree about Hellraiser 4....hmmm, how can we make the series more interesting? That's it, blast Pinhead off into outer space! I genuinely was expecting a musical Hellraiser with a dancing Pinhead after that. 7 also deserves a mention for having a title that isn't actually a real word, "Deader"!!!

Was about level with 1 & 2, definitely better than The Wedding and all the crappy spin offs.

Watched it on Sunday in London and got anally raped having to pay over 13 quid each at the cinema for it, grrr.

I agree although I did like 3 just not what they did with Stiffler being mature. I did like the fact it kinda looked over all the films except the wedding and acted as more of a direct sequel to the first film. It was also great to see stiffler *spoiler* as a sweet payback. It did seem to nod massivly at a sequel but I'd be happy if this was the last film, no need to flog it death.

This Means War - Relatively inoffensive comedy. Overall it was better tham most films of it's type & had some decent moments in it. 6/10.

The Rum Diary - Read the book instead. Movie was bad side of average hence a score of 3/10 (most of this comes from the fact the Amber Heard is insanely hot).

Outpost: Black Sun - Horror Sequel to a decent little indie film. I was actually expecting this to be terrible. Fair enough it's not great by any means, but was a reasonably decent way to waste an hour & a half. 6/10

im still waiting for this to get a uk release. it's so delayed, im starting to think the prequel, which they are filming now, will be released before it.

Myself, my stock manager and a few colleagues have decided to work our way through the IMDB top 250. I got started with Shawshank last night. Forgot how fucking brilliant that film is.

I started this about a year or so back, I've done around 180 at the moment. Given myself a break as I went through a run of films which bored the shit out of me. I'm pretty close to doing the top 100. Much to my surprise this experiment has turned me into a big fan of Woody Allen and Charlie Chaplin ( I was dreading watching some of the latter! ).
